Accident Victim Feels ?Validated? After Injury Lawsuit Win
The Ocala Star-Banner has a nice profile of Tammy Kimball and her personal injury lawsuit.
According to the paper "Kimball was involved in a horrible car accident that left her with permanent scars, chronic arthritis and the inability to complete such routine tasks as running, gardening or climbing the stairs while holding her 4-month-old grandson."
The jury awarded Kimball $2.7 million, but she said the figure didn’t matter.
"These people validated everything I went through. It’s not about the money … if there was no money involved, I could still get on with my life, because somebody said I got hurt, I suffered."
The story has some other nice quotes, from Kimball’s attorney and other local personal injury attorneys, that provide nice insight into the process of awarding of determining the appropriate payout to a victim.
From the article:
Randy Briggs, an Ocala accident victim attorney for the past 25 years, said only in extremely rare cases do judges decide to reduce the amount awarded by juries.
"Juries almost always get it right," he said. "They take their responsibilities extremely seriously. It’s the highest calling they’ll have in their lifetime in participating in our form of government where they participate in a decision that’s going to have a profound impact on other people."
